Motorola Moto G
Two new variants of Moto G are expected.

Two LTE variants of Motorola's super-successful Moto G have now shown up on Amazon, according to a new report. The first one happens to be a black Universal LTE, while the second one is the white Universal LTE model. The handsets were listed for $219.99 each (£130.35).

The news broke out on the eve of a launch event by Motorola at London, in which the company is expected to introduce its latest smartphone, the Moto E.

The Moto G received rave reviews from across the mobile industry and it registred strong sales for the company.

However, experts and fans have been constantly requesting for an LTE model of the smarthphone, so that they could make use of the blazing fast data speeds that carriers are offering these days.

Now that the Moto G is no longer limited to HSPA+ speeds, we expect it to appeal to a whole new group of consumers who like their data hard and fast.

Moto G's Success

Motorola's presence in Europe was negligible before the Moto G was launched in November last year. The budget smartphone has allowed the manufacturer to capture 6% of British sales. "It highlights the speed at which a quality budget phone can disrupt a market," said Dominic Sunnebo, director of Kantar Worldpanel ComTech.

The handset also saw explosive sales in markets such as Latin America and India, granting the once declining company a new lease of life in the smartphone industry.
